Lucky Brian Holdstock has won the 100 Club draw for the second time this year. After his first win in March (which he decribed then as “a good return on his investment”), Brian won the draw again in July. If you’ve not yet joined the 100 Club for this year, it’s not too late; just get in touch with Robin Ratciffe on 01424 892674.
The March and April winners of our “100 Club” draw were Nicky Bishop, who put her prize money towards fixing her shower, and Brian Holdstock who made a very businesslike comment about “return on investment”. You can join the 100 Club at any time durng the year, for a mere £1 per month. Contact Robin Ratcliffe (on 01424 892674) if you’d like to join in.
